A carbapenem-sparing regimen of tigecycline plus gentamicin or colistin was effective for treating 24/26 (92%) KPC-Kp infectious episodes in 22 polytrauma ICU patients without comorbidities. The 30-day crude mortality rate was 14%. Regimens were considered appropriate in 12% of episodes according to Vitek® 2 and in 100% based on E-test.
